We are a partie of six with five Motorbikes. On arrival we were given different rooms as booked. This wasn't a problem. The place has a flair from second world war and unfortunately has really developed from there on. Breakfast is poor, the choice is very very limited. You can't take warm shower until well after 8' o clock (if... More

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon in 2013. The MacKinnon Country House Hotel is made up of an old manor and an annex behind it (where our room was). Aesthetically it's a nice place with an appealing mix of manicured and semi-wild grounds. They have an honesty bar which is an interesting feature. You can make yourself... More

My husband, and my friends (another couple), swung by prior to check-in. The door was wide open with no one about. We decided since we were two hours early, we'd go grab something to eat and explore a little. We came back after the said check-in. Our friend rang the service bell a few times. And even saw a few...

Stayed here 10 days ago Arrived at 7pm to be told hotel restaurant was closed, that they wouldn't be serving any food, should make people aware of this when they book. Wifi, non existent, blaming the weather for it not working. Breakfast, got the order wrong. Got home to find they'd charged me twice for the privilege of staying there.... More

Rooms were large and clean, the shower ok, but water pressure was a tad low, but fine. the BF was very good along with the bar in the evening. the staff... More

It's glory days are over, in need of upgrade throughout and new management. Don't expect a warm welcome and don't try to check in before 4pm ! On a good point the staff in bar and waiting tables are lovely.

This hotel has nothing going for it. We were greeted by a rude owner who started by disputing we even had a booking although we had made one 10 months ago and had the paperwork to prove it. This hotel is situated by the bridge on the way into Skye but I strongly suggest that going closer to Portree is... More
